I don't recall having any problems removing that piece. It was a couple of years ago though.
Have you tried tapping it out with a punch and a hammer?

i will copy this solution.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s29E1CN_k6U

In my opinion., you should find a better design to copy.   If you want to make it realistic, that is.
That design only has about 50-60 degrees of movement each way with the for the ailerons, where the real thing has 105 degrees each way.

Another issue would be the way the cables are terminated, that would allow a lot of play between the 2 yokes,

Again, this is just my opinion, there are many different ways to do this.

Also Craig is quite correct, that bolt should just tap out with a punch.  It will be a friction fit into the bearings which is why its just turns.

Thanks all. I will focus also on Scotts design, looks pro and seems to work awesome in his videos.

Scott: Do you have to adjust anything after a couple of years? Like cable tension etc, or is your setup as it was in the videos still?

The original setup requires too much height. About 50-60cm, too much for my room. I took the boxes apeart last night, will use the wheels and bearings. Hopefully this setup will be easy. (Almost as easy as the Original setup)

Bingo!

Didnt feel right to not use the OEM stuff so i thought about a solution and came up with this!

A smallex box than the original but i can still use the Clevis and Spade joint!
So no rod pressing and custom stuff! This saves me time and money and so cool to have the original stuff. Even the cable is from the real aircraft!

So happy i found this solution. ( even though Bernard kind of told me) but hey, with my miniture stand i pass under 30cm of height!

Hahah Maybe i will add control loading, but not in the near future! Haha.
I will create a "prototype" in wood and once i know all the measurements etc i will convert it to some steelframe.

kurt may i make a suggestion with regards to yiyr buikd and where you are at now...  what you are doing is super cool period..oem parts for somethings are the only way to go... what you are doing noe is emuati g a simulator rather than simulating the aircraft  there is a huge difference between the two ...

my suggestion is since you are doing up down and left right with your control uprights... and you have it all open i think.the best bang for yiyr buck is to add control loading now.. just on a single control surface   ... the pretty stuff can come later .. it may not make sence to you now   but with cl.in place yiur "sim" is noe a sim
and it will not fly like a train    .. if you ever do one thing I tell yiu.. this is it ..lol

I will make the box easy to access. I feel that i dont have any knowledge in control loading right now, so i need to do some investigation first. I dont even know what parts to get. :)

Can anyone help me confirm that the spade and clevis joint is properly setup. When the film begins i have the yoke centered. In the drawings and some samples i have seen that the spade and joint is turned 90 degrees.
Just would be glad to get some input of anyone who has used the same setup.
